|Last Logged in last week|
I'm a mature mother of two teenage girls, who are well mannered, thoughtful and sensible. I love children and enjoy being with them, reading, playing games, talking etc. I sew and do crafts and love helping children with hand crafts, homework and the like. With younger children I think a routine is good and lots of talking and cuddles even better. I am a happy natured person, well balanced, fair and loving with many skills in many areas.
I am fairly strict and believe children should have manners and follow through with things they are asked to do (homework, chores etc). I don't like children watching too much TV/ internet or too many computer games.
I'm not into packaged or junk foods but prefer home cooked meals from the basic ingredients. I am a good cook and can cook for adults, babies and children of all ages.
Oh, I don't smoke & I rarely drink.
I have worked as a nanny previously and have rather old references, but once you are a mother you are always a mother. I feel the experience I have gained as a mother far outweighs any experience picked up looking after other children.
I have experience with very prem babies from 29 & 32 weeks gestation.
I have experience with feeding issues, colic, reflux and sleeping problems, night/daytime confusion in young babies, breast and bottle feeding problems.
I have a police clearance & a WWC.
I don't have a first aid certificate as yet but I am calm in an emergency and take the necessary steps to solve the problem. I have a reliable vehicle and a clean driving record. I am a confident, capable driver.
I am looking for work as a casual nanny/ babysitter for those nights you want to go out.
If you would like to have a chat on the phone or meet for a cuppa, I'm available. I would like to discuss your needs and what you are looking for and see if I fit your requirements.
